Soft bridal gowns, an intimate garden setting, and a collection of luxe vintage furniture—this wedding inspiration shot by Carrie Coleman Photography has eye candy for any pastel, floral, or vintage lover out there! Alex Meyer Events + the team wanted to prove how fantastic a wedding can be, no matter what:

Alex says, Every detail of this shoot shows that your wedding can be gorgeous and just right no matter the circumstances, size, or scale. Even if you can’t have the large wedding with every detail planned, you can still begin your marriage in a meaningful, beautiful, personal way.

Between the above foliage + this building, Tuckahoe Plantation was a brilliant choice for such a special day.

JM Flora Design brought together so many different florals and colors for the bouquets + arrangements. Sigh!

Alex says, The flowers, the ribbon, the wardrobe, the furniture, the stationery… I can’t pick a favorite! Our photographer, Carrie, is a culinary school graduate and made the meal our models shared at the end of the night. All of the creatives that made it happen are crazy talented and created a hopelessly romantic and hilariously fun day! I’m grateful for their time and talents and so thankful for the eight gorgeous models (including my husband!) who laughed the whole way through.

Seriously flawless work by every single person involved!

Warm Winter boubon cocktail idea | Photo by Celeste Noche Photography | 100 Layer Cake

Sandwiched in between the holidays and Valentine’s day, January events can feel a little uninspired without a bit of creative thinking. But whether it’s a winter celebration or a laid back date night with your other half, a unique + well-crafted cocktail will definitely spice things up a bit! Portland-based Mint and Mirth has both of those down pat, (which we already knew from all the wedding cocktails they showed us here), and today they’re sharing how to make The Second Breakfast, alongside these photos by Celeste Noche Photography. Enjoy…

This nightcappy cocktail features English Breakfast tea syrup and flavors of lemon and lime. Best of all, it’s easy to prepare at home for one, two, or twenty, so it’s perfect for any winter soirée!

Second Breakfast

• 2 oz. “The Classic” tea syrup by Owl’s Brew
• 1 ½ oz. Burnside Double Barrel Bourbon from Eastside Distilling
• ¾ oz. fresh lemon juice
• 3-5 fresh mint leaves
• Ice
• Lemon peel for garnish

Shake all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice, then strain into chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a twisted lemon peel, and enjoy!

We see no reason why you couldn’t plan an entire winter party around the debut of your new cocktail skills!

Um yeahhh, the gardens at Cal A Vie look pretty magical, don’t they? The ladies at Luxe Events knew they wanted to bring a little France to Southern California by embracing the authentic French vibes of the property. With florals, candles, and gold accents for décor and classically stylish bride + groom, we already feel far removed from the city. So happy Bryan Miller sent these romantic snaps our way!

Luxe Events says, The crunchy gravel, storied wood beams, those walls in the L’Orangerie ballroom. This property quietly takes hold of your heart and sweeps you away to a French provincial countryside. The building itself, the furnishings, the flora in the gardens, are all imported from Europe. The venue is at once rustic yet also undeniably aristocratic.

A Jenny Packham + lush gardens = A perfect combo for an air of French elegance. Reminds us of this Beaulieu Garden wedding, also in California.

A tablescape made up of fresh flowers by Blush Botanicals + gold touches…

We paired traditional French blue with blushes and gold. Picking the elements of the table setting, we felt it was important to stick to classic and dainty. Hostess Haven had the perfect delicate plates, flatware, and glassware.  rchive Rentals had a table and benches that looked meant for this space.
